voters are weighing tonight, there is a ballot initiative to approve a 25% tax on marijuana. one of the things you talked about and i learned from you about legalization of marijuana is it shouldn't be considered a revenue-razr. you shouldn't legalize it to raise money. a 25% tax is what they need in colorado. >> by the way i need my bong back. >> i'll get that down to you. >> i hate the argument for criminalization or legalization based on taxes. you have a sound argument to legalize drugs because a human being has a right to oblivion. he has a right to get out of his mind if he wants to, without hurting anybody else. it's about time we grow up when it comes to this stuff. saying we should legalize it because the government gets more money. that's idiotic. >> you don't believe that about heroin, do you? >> i believe heroin could be legalized if done in a delivery system, which makes it more like a cigarette. >> same thing with gambling, too. when you see people's personal lives falling apart, it shouldn't be away to pay your bloated budgets. if you want to do it, do it. don't look
